I'm pretty pleased with what I've made of late. I went to a Lyndsay Mason demo at Pinnacles shop the other week and was so impressed with her wintry sky themed cards, I just had to have a go myself. Totally hooked on distressing these days. Want to pluck up the courage to have a go at brayering again - when I find the time.
Since we changed our hours at work, its been manic most days and all I want to do when I get home is crash on the sofa.
I've been teaching my friend Jenny about card making and showing her how I do things. Dont profess to be an expert - far from it! - but its been great to see her have a go and pick things up so quickly. Her house is slowly turning into a craft shop, just like mine! We went to an acetate card class last weekend and had fun making three cards -
Its a bit difficult to see the acetate on the circlular floral one, but that was fun to do cutting out a flower shape in acetate and then adding the paper after. The Christmas scene was supposed to be covered with acetate too, but I prefered it as it was, coloured with Promarkers :-)
And finally, the October swap card for UKPC. A favourite book from your childhood. Although I absolutely adored Enid Blytons Famous Five, Malory Towers and the "Adventure" (Island of . . , etc) books, it was my Rupert Bear annual beside my bed at the age of 8 which was in my head from the start of me thinking about what I would use as my theme - hence . . .
See you in Craftland . . . .
